KIAMA Little Athletics runner Taj Ford ended the 2013-14 season in style by taking out the under-9 boys title at the State Cross Country and Road Walks, held at Kembla Grange.
Having set a state record to win the NSW under-9 800m title in March, Taj came home at the front of a field of 49 at the cross-country event in what was described as a "fast and furious" race.
Also flying the Kiama colours on the cold and windy winter day was Elias Oldfield, who did brilliantly to place eighth in the under-7 boys cross-country event.
It is almost time to dust off the singlets for the 2014-15 season.
Registration days for the upcoming season will be held on Friday, August 22, and Friday, August 29, at the Kiama Rugby Club from 4pm until 6pm.
Registration costs $65 for the first athlete and $55 for subsequent athletes from the same family.
New members will require proof of age in the form of birth certificate, passport or hospital blue book.
Please note payment is by cash or cheque only at the registration days, but online registration is also available for people wanting to pay by credit card.
People who register online will still need to attend a registration day to pick up a registration number, age patch, calendar and centre handbook.
You will also be required to complete some paperwork that relates specifically to the Kiama Centre.
If you do register online please ensure that you bring your printed invoice to the registration day.
The season begins at 9am on Saturday, September 13, and moves to 5.30pm on Fridays from October 17.
